The Latin-American Studies Program is an interdepartmental and intercollege
area program which, in combination with a major in one of the departments of
the University, leads to a Bachelor of Arts or Master of Arts degree. The Latin-
American program provides either a concurrent major or a minor to accompany
the departmental major.

The program is designed to meet the professional and cultural goals of those
who are especially interested in Latin America and whose needs are not fully
served by a major in one department. The Department of Spanish and Portu-
guese offers training in the languages and literatures of Latin America; the Po-
litical Science Department covers the governments and political institutions; and
so forth.

Those who seek employment in business or governmental agencies in Latin
America or are interested in the area for other reasons may best prepare them-
selves professionally by broad study in the languages, literature, culture, geogra-
phy, politics, history, society, and economy of the region. The Latin-American
Studies Program is designed to fulfill these requirements. Students interested
in Latin America who plan to do graduate study or teach should investigate the
double major program — a program that combines the advantages of a broad,
comprehensive understanding of an area with the depth of a major in a single

For graduate-degree requirements, see the Graduate School Catalog.

Study Abroad

The University currently offers two opportunities for travel study in Spanish-
speaking countries: the Semester in Madrid program and the summer residence
program in Mexico. Both are open to students in Latin-American Studies and pro-
vide the opportunity for study in the Spanish language and various related areas.
The courses offered in these programs help fulfill the requirements for the majors
and minors offered.

Law Enforcement

Assistant Professor: Fletcher (Coordinator, 4 CRWH).
Instructors: Ball, Lund, Nielsen, Sherwood, Wootton.

The Law Enforcement Education Program is designed to prepare students for ca-
reers in law enforcement and related fields in the administration of criminal jus-
tice. The courses offered will provide students with the background and aca-
demic skills and some exposure to the technical skills necessary to qualify them
for employment with federal, state, local, industrial-institutional, and private law
enforcement agencies. The aim of the program is to produce law enforcement
and other criminal justice personnel who possess high-level professional skills,
an understanding of the forces that work in society, skill in human relations,
the ability to adapt to the rapid changes of modern living, and the moral courage
to put these skills and abilities to righteous use.

Degrees are offered at the associate, bachelor's, and master's degree levels.

Associate Degree in Law Enforcement

The associate degree program is administered by the Technical Institute of the
College of Industrial and Technical Education. This degree is earned upon the
completion of a two-year curriculum consisting of approximately 50 percent
general education courses and 50 percent specialized courses in law enforcement
and closely related subjects. Students who wish to obtain this degree should
enroll in the Technical Institute. For further details regarding the associate
degree program, see the Technical Institute section of this catalog.

Bachelor's Degree in Law Enforcement

Students majoring in law enforcement are required to complete 30 credit hours
of study chosen from the following courses in consultation with their adviser:

Master of Public Administration (MPA), and it includes law enforcement as an
area of specialization. For further details and requirements, see the Institute of
Government Service section of the Graduate School Catalog.

Requirements for a Minor for Law Enforcement Majors

Although a minor is not required under present University regulations, students
majoring in law enforcement may complete a minor in any of the other depart-
ments in the University. Recommended minors are: political science, psychology,
or sociology. The number of credit hours needed and the courses required to
complete a minor are determined by the department in which the minor is to
be taken. The credit hours used in fulfilling the minor requirements cannot be
counted twice with those used in fulfilling the major requirements. As an al-
ternative to these minor requirements, students may select a concurrent major
within one of the following departments: Political Science, Psychology, or Sociolo-
gy. If this alternative is chosen, credit hours used to fulfill the requirements in
the concurrent major may be counted twice with those used to fulfill the re-
quirements for a major in law enforcement. The courses selected to complete
the minor requirements or the concurrent major requirements should be chosen
in consultation with the adviser and with the chairman of the chosen minor or
concurrent major department.

Requirements for a Minor in Law Enforcement

For a student minoring in law enforcement, 20 credit hours are required, chosen
from the following courses in consultation with his adviser:

Required Courses:
